It should be on the front page.
Thanks much! I really appreciate the feedback and the nomination. I do have some plans for some major improvements I hope to implement once the summer is over, so I hope it will be even better soon. Give me a holler if you ever head up this way!
great work putting this page together!
page!!! Stellar pics and the beta you have is top rate!
Didn't realize that Shasta had so many routes.
The pictures the page and its information is all great. Its probably the nearest I will ever get to see this beautiful mountain though.
Got here from the "Featured Pages" sidebar on the homepage. I wish all the Cascade volcanoes had pages this complete. Well done!
I am looking to climb Mt. Shasta this July 2011. I will be using a guide service, and was just looking for some feedback on the various guide services that work in the area. Also, looking for an easier route up (class 2), but would like to avoid the "traffic jam" of Avalanche gulch. Any and all info appreciated!
I can offer you my opinions, but you would get broader input if you posted this question in the California forum. If you are looking for guide services, two are active here on SP and are reputable:
Shasta Mountain Guides:
thanks for the info!
I admit I am picky when it comes to famous peaks, most authors of SP in my opinion don't quite put as much details into a page that it should. Granted they put more text than your average page, but when it comes to Cascade Volcano pages, I expect a lot. But this page surpassed my expectations. I was overwhelmed with the details! :-D (that is a good thing!) Plus you did well with the photography choices for displaying the page. I rank this on the top 5 best pages I've ever seen on SummitPost. Well done!
Thanks Josh! I have actually been meaning to give the page's appearance a big revamp in the near future, though I intended to keep the content essentially the same. The page, much like some of the other places in the area, is a real labor of love. If you ever need a place to crash or a climbing partner in the area, give me a holler!
Great page. Sure beats some of the guide books in print!
